I am writing this from one of the horrendous rooms at this hotel and honestly don't know why i did not listen to all the bad reviews on here and Still ended up booking into this hotel!! Even though I wasn't expecting too much, it is a cheap hotel after all, (I'm not a princess, I'm happy with basic facilities) this is beyond anything I've stayed in before... And I have backpacked extensively around Europe and the UK!
We arrived late, tired after a weekend at Coachella music festival in California. So you would think that I'm just keen for a bed, a shower and some sleep. Except that I'm wishing it was at least still before midnight so I could leave and find somewhere else!!
The lobby isn't too bad, standard really. But the moment we stepped into the lift, I got a bit of a bad feeling. But that's ok... Heaps of places have scary dodgy lifts, right? Well yes, but then you step out into the hall, and get a really bad feeling. It's like something out of a movie with the gross hotels where prostitutes frequent and people with hopeless lives live... Then we opened the door to our room and we were blasted with the stench of stale cigarette smoke, and a totally run down room. Words can't describe the horrible feeling you get in here. This place really should be knocked down, there is no saving it.
I've actually just looked back at other reviews and photos on here and had to laugh at how silly I have been... The photos of all the other rooms look the same as this one - crooked lamp shades, cracked tiles, cracked louvres and a pokey uncomfortable bed.
I've met two staff so far. Both have been hugely disinterested and unhelpful.
Don't make my mistake. There are so so many places to stay. This just isn't worth it!
